[makes sounds] like that, yeah? okay. but when then a high frequency is propagated through space, watch. it traces out what we call a... sine curve. it's really a sine curve but a representation of a wave, okay? now, we gonna go through some definitions, gang. this frequency dragged out. the dotted line is my equilibrium point. i'm gonna vibrate above the equilibrium and below, and i go just as far above and just as far as below. i call this particular distance here, by the way-- let's ta
